Blak Dragon: A Game of Space Warfare
Blak Dragon brings players to the war for Sol system. Fight strategically and tactically in the orbital cities, asteroid bases, Martian jungles and all the icy vacuum in-between. This game is set in the time after the Earth's cities were destroyed by the evil Warpigs.
Players can control cities and capital ships that are deployed on a simple 3 dimensional hex-board. As well these larger areas have their own tactical maps for simulation of boarding party battles, weapon strikes and tactical deployment information like command center locations, hangar decks, and storage areas.
Vessel commands are issued with Command cards that have to be played in a cunning manner as there are a limited number of these powerful abilities like Network Commands, Ship Movement, Beam Fire, Rally Troops and even Self Destruct.
Combat and skill use are decided by a simple combination of ability stats and some random dice elements.
Blak Dragon also has a robust technological strategic computer system that portrays use of network and hive mind drone systems that can be co-opted through computer hacking by a vessel or a boarding party. There is also a system of hidden movement for cloaked units. In Blak Dragon players can field units with genetically engineered or cybernetically implanted abilities like finger claws and night-vision.
